Product Overview

  • Waterproof and easy to install
  • Indoor and outdoor safe
  • For use on stone or ceramic tile
Ditra is a polyethylene uncoupling underlayment with a grid structure of square cutback cavities and an anchoring fleece laminated to the underside. Ditra provides uncoupling through the open rib structure which allows for in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface. Ditra provides waterproofing and vapor management. Underlayment for tile.
  • Designed for use with ceramic and stone tile
  • Ideal for interior and exterior tile and stone installations
  • Neutralizes stress that originates in the subfloor to eliminate the main cause of tile cracking
  • Waterproofs and allows moisture in the substrate to evaporate
  • Replaces backboard or a second layer of plywood
  • Polyethylene material
  • 54 sq. ft. roll measuring 3 ft. 3 in. x 16 ft. 5 in.
  • 1/8 in. thick membrane makes transitioning to other surfaces simple
  • Easy installation over a thinset mortar

on a plywood floor with back board over the plywood, do I need this product ?
Asked by: roundtoit
Yes, without a doubt. The subfloor still moves around, and its that movement which Ditra isolates

I would like to install tiles on the basement concrete slab. I would use Ditra membrane, as instructed, but I have a bit of a problem with the slab. I had cat peeing on the carpet while we were away, and the slab absorbed some of it. I cleaned and sealed small portion of it (few square meters) with Killz water based latex sealant and replace the carpet. The other new stains are not treated, we decided to remove the carpet and tile the whole basement. My dilemma is - if I don't seal the new pee stains and apply thinset + Ditra membrane, will that stop the odor coming around the membrane in the corners? If I seal the concrete in those areas with concrete sealant to block the odor, will the thin-set bond with the concrete?
Asked by: Mackar
First, you need to kill the odor and not paint over it. I had good success with a similar problem in a concrete basement floor by simply sprinkling a good amount of baking soda onto the areas and letting it sit for an hour or so. Then vacuumed up the soda. Baking soda can be purchased in large bags in the pool supply section of Home Depot and other stores. I would not use Ditra on the concrete floor, I would tile directly onto the existing concrete. I would grind off the Kilz and lay the tile directly onto the concrete. In cases like this, I always contact the manufacturer! Manufacturer's tech service line is 1-888-472-4588.

Ditra 54 sq. ft. 3 ft. 3 in. x 16 ft. 5 in. x 1/8 in. Thick Uncoupling Membrane is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product if you do it right I've installed in bathrooms, utility rooms, kitchens and on counter tops. Works excellent. The Versabond Home Depot sells will work between wood substrate and Ditra, but Home Depot does not sell a good unmodified. Custom Blend just doesn't cut it. You must use a premium unmodified mortar between tile and Ditra (no polymer!! it's not supposed to stick to the Ditra!). Mastic is not recommended. All premixes contain polymer. 11/64 trowel is not required, Schluter themselves even say so. I used a 1/4 x 3/16 v-notch trowel that they say is ok to use. Home Depot sells this. You don't need a roller to embed it, i use a grout float and it works just fine, pull up a corner to check for proper coverage. Back butter your ceramics. No one says you can't use it with concrete backer board. The more insurance the better. This is a lifetime floor if you follow Schluters instructions. Their FAQ can help you sort through who is giving you the right information.

For big sheets very helpful to have assistance when laying into the thinset. Easy to cut with scissors or utility knife. Follow directions on the consistency of the thinset - works much better (mixed to a fairly fluid consistency, but still able to hold a notch).

More expensive than taking the traditional route but knowing I shouldn't have any leaks was great. My only recommendation is to bring the price down a little or add at leave 6 more sq ft...54 is inconvenient and I'm pretty sure they know that
